Fans and social media users have blasted American singer and actress, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, for not lending a voice to the on-going #EndSARS protest.
A video by popular Nigerian afrobeat artiste Tiwa Savage sparked this outrage. Tiwa Savage took to her instagram account to call out Beyonce and her team for staying silent about the current police brutality fight going on in Nigeria.
Tiwa Savage noted that Beyonce‘s latest album “Black is King”, majorly about the uniqueness and beauty of Africa and afrobeat, was widely celebrated by Africans. Thus , it is necessary for Beyonce to lend a voice to the present situation of the country “that birthed this afrobeat genre”.
However, mixed feelings have trailed these comments by Tiwa Savage.
Meanwhile, a number of other international celebrities have lent a voice to the protest, see them HERE
